Recommendations on post-surgical-repair Achilles brace?

Posted , 2 users are following.


I am currently 5 weeks post-op and in a walking boot. I have been told that after leaving the boot, it is advisable to wear a soft brace (for some time) in an athletic shoe...especially if one if going to be walking on uneven ground and/or in crowds. I have tried searching for brace recommendations, but everything I find is a brace for treatment of tendinitis which promotes dorsiflexion, while what I want is a brace to inhibit unwanted/excessive dorsiflexion.

Can anyone suggest a good brand/model of brace for use in the first weeks after transitioning out of the boot? Many thanks!!!
